Have you ever wanted to have an action figure with your face on it? Now you can, as Hasbro has launched its “Selfie Series,” a program that turns anyone into a hero with help of 3D printing. All it takes is a few selfies, an idea whom you’d like to be turned into, and of course, some cash.
With the heat of August, I thought that nothing will beat making a small beach set photo in the chill studio. In this product shot, I am going to use three lights to simulate outdoor sunlight for a small scale
product octopus attack shot.
I am going to use a Miggo Splat , a small stand which kinda looks like a 5 armed octopus. Given this similarity I decided to make a light hearted photo using an action figure I own.
Toys are meant to entertain no matter your age, according to Daniel Cerejo, so rather than let his toys collect dust he decided to have some fun and photograph them.
Cerejo’s love of toys and humor has lead to an ongoing series capturing the daily experiences of pop culture action figures, and over 20,000 followers on his Instagram account.
See how Kermit the Frog and Mr. Potato groom, Spiderman in a sticky situation and Darth Vader putting his lightsaber to good use.
If you are like me you know what superheroes are doing for the brief 120 minutes that they are on the silver screen, but surely they have a life after the movie, and they face the same situations as we all do, don’t they? Photographer Edy Hardjo decided to find out.
In his photos our favorite superheroes face jealousy, bodily needs and human emotions. Not without a healthy sense of humor.
I wondered how the photos look so real. I guess using 1/6 detailed figures (like Hot Toys, Enterbay, 3A and alike, they those are not cheap and can easily go over $200-$300) have a big contribution to that, but Edy also told DIYP that he makes small modifications to the figures: “especially the hair. I change original the sculpted hair with rooted hair, to make it looked more alive. My friend do it for me, he is the expert“. And those modifications are well worth the effort.
